Solko or Solke Johannes van den Bergh (June 4, 1854 in The Hague - December 25, 1916) was a Dutch sports shooter.

Van den Bergh was a notary by profession who on June 6 1880 married the noble Sophia Emma Nicoletta van Limburg Brouwer in Zeist. Together with his friend Henrik Sillem and the Frenchman Fran├žois Monod he initiated the first "international shooting matches" (world championships in shooting) in 1897 in Lyon. These were the forerunners of the matches that were held in Paris in 1900, now considered to have been part of the Olympics. Van den Bergh participated in these and won a bronze medal with the Dutch pistol team.
